A LITTLE BACKGROUND ABOUT 4WINGS: A supportive organisation for women's empowerment!
4Wings is a small grassroots nonprofit organisation that works closely with its members and supports them with their expressed needs. PLEASE HAVE A LOOK AT SOME OF OUR OTHER PROJECTS! Or visit our YOUTUBE CHANNEL! As we are a small organisation, sometimes we fall through the gaps of traditional funding so we need your support to make this happen!
All of the projects that we deliver are inclusive of people from all racial backgrounds. We have had participants from Europe, Africa and the Americas and do not condone any racist, prejudice or aggressive behaviour as we are inclusive to all. In alliance with our Anti-Discrimination policy, 4Wings firmly believes that everyone deserves equal access to available opportunities.
This is why 4Wings members trust us because we offer and guarantee a safe and non-judgmental environment where everyone's voice is heard no matter where you come from, your gender, sexual identity, religion, how you dress or the colour of your skin !
Our vision is based on five core values:
1. Connecting people
2. Connecting families
3. Reducing social isolation
4. Improving physical and mental health
5. Creativity/having fun
Our mission is to ENGAGE, ENABLE and EMPOWER women.
Why Zumba ?
- "It's not a Workout! It's a party!" said Alberto Perez, the Colombian Zumba inventor.
The objective of 4Wings' Zumba en Familia is to give people the chance to have fun while exercising. Zumba is an enjoyable way to loose weight and improve physical health. It is a great way to de-stress whilst keeping the body moving and is a different, fun workout that is especially helpful for beginners who are shy or feel more protected in a reserved environment; and last but not least, people fighting social isolation.
We came up with this idea after seeing the negative impacts of the pandemic on overall wellbeing. People's mental health and physical bodies have been adversely affected while staying at home for several months and because of this it has been very difficult for our sessions to be delivered, including our usual drop-in service to support clients with: one-to-one coaching sessions, advocacy and personal development.
Some of the people we work alongside are often financially unable to go out or pay for classes that benefit their general health, therefore we at 4Wings are driven to provide inclusive services for these women. Statistics have proven that during traumatic events, those who were occupied in an activity felt more Positive and were less negatively affected by their experiences which is why 4Wings believes that in response to the pandemic; arranging Zumba classes would keep whoever attends busy mentally and physically which helps to tackle depression and feelings of loneliness.
How will the money raised be distributed?
- The money will go towards funding the Zumba classes for 12 weeks. This will include sourcing a Professional Zumba instructor; covering space costs for sessions; Travel refunds for participants who are financially disadvantaged; Refreshments and hiring a Project coordinator.
